It adds up to 7 million pounds of halibut this year

Shout out to Alaska Public Radio and all the local stations that keep us up to date on commercial and recreational fishing news.

Here's an example of one story about halibut bycatch in the trawl fishery. (Other fisheries too, but the bulk is discarded dead in the trawl fishery.)

Spoiler: it was a lot. Seven million pounds. Jeff Lockwood from www.kbbi.org reports:

"This Week in Bycatch - June 18"
